FIRST IDEAL

Harry Carl Schaub , J.D., a.D. was the keynote speaker at Holy Family University's Holocaust Conference on November 14th. His address, "The Secret Mission of the German Abwehr: To Defeat the Third Reich," discussed the German-Austrian side of this horrible equation and the resistance to the Third Reich within the German military. Mr. Schaub joined Pi Gamma Mu through the Pennsylvania Delta chapter at the University of Pennsylvania in 1949. He received his J.D. degree from Yale University's School of Law.

Mr. Schaub has been a distinguished international attorney in Philadelphia with the prestigious Center City law firm Montgomery, McCracken, Walker & Rhoads, LLP since 1955. He was a member of American intelligence during the early years of the Cold War (serving as captain in the U.S. Army's Military Intelligence Branch). He has monitored events in Yugoslavia. He was consul general of the Republic of Austria for Eastern and Central Pennsylvania for almost 30 years. He served as dean and CEO of Consular Corps College, a national organization that Schaub helped reactivate. He served several terms as president and chief of Protocol of Consular Corps of Philadelphia. He has been the chair of the Philadelphia Warburg Chapter of the American Council of Germany for the past 10 years. He is the former vice chairperson of the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia, and commander of the Pennsylvania Commandery of the Military Order of Foreign Wars. He founded, and is the former president and director of, the John Peter Zenger Law Society.

Mr. Schaub has won the Johann Strauss Medal of the City of Vienna, the Golden Cross of Honor of the Republic of Austria, and the Large Cross of Honor of the Republic of Austria. He has published two articles: "General Erwin Lahousen – Austrian Resistance Activist" in the U.S./Austrian Chamber of Commerce Newsletter, April-May 2003; and "General Lahousen and the Abwehr Resistance" in the International Journal of Intelligence and CounterIntelligence 19:538-558 (Fall 2006). His new book about Major General Ervin Lahousen, Call Your First Witness, will be published in the near future.
